The Dodge Viper will say goodbye in 2017 when it is scheduled to cease its manufacturing after 25 awesome years in the automotive industry. Those who are looking to pick up one of the remaining Vipers will have to travel to North Carolina as an official dealership already ordered 99% of the last Viper production cars.

Farewell Dear Viper

The Dodge Viper is on in its last year of production and soon the world will say goodbye to 25 years of the awesomeness of this car. This bad news for American sports lovers and anyone who loves this world of cars arrived a few months ago when the company announced five special editions to honor the Viper and said that the last batch of production will be on 2017.

The reasons given were really not understandable, but most pointed to the low number of sales that has suffered the last generation, which does not justify its manufacturing price. Even with these, one of the dealers of the official brand decides that it will be an honor to get 99% of the last batch of dodge vipers ever produced.

Hoarding Dodge Vipers

The dealer who hoards the last batch of vipers is located in Salisbury, North Carolina and is one of the largest distributors in the country of the Dodge Viper. The assembly plant of Dodge Viper in Michigan received 140 orders for the 2017 Dodge Viper and even requested for the cars to have with unique paintings and other unique accessories in some of them. Dodge offers more than 8,000 colors for the Viper, so picking out a few unused shades couldn't have been too difficult.

Also among those 140 Dodge Viper are special units corresponding to special editions ever put on the street such as the Viper Aero Edition and Advanced Aero package among others.

Despite the exclusivity and hoarding advantage of the final Dodge Vipers, Gerry Wood Dodge doesn't plan to add a dealer markup to the car. In fact, the dealership even announced that customers will be treated with VIP services and their units will be delivered specially to them to say goodbye to the Viper in an epic way.
